Head to Head Haiku

I joined this Facebook group:  Head to Head Haiku.  Here is a sample of my contributions.

* * * * *

It would be nice if
One of my extreme ventures
Brought in some income

My income need not be
Extreme to satisfy me
But I shan't complain.

I provide service!
I'm great at what I'm doing!
Where is the love, y'all?!

Poverty was a 
Lesson for me.  I learned my 
Values hold up well.

Peanut butter and
Three-Fruit marmade.  Breakfast
of this champion.

Grapefruit, lemons and
Seville oranges, in the
Dundee tradition.

Oh boy, and no thanks.
Even just a taste of fame
Leaves me way creeped out.

Lyrics pour through me
Like DNA building a
New human being

My heart is open
To what your love might offer
Blind as usual

Cannot hold my breath.
While tempests rage around me,
Inhale, exhale, be.
